Mattupetty Dam is a concrete gravity dam, constructed between 1949 and 1953 for the purpose of conservation of water and hydroelectricity generation. Featuring a catchment area of 105 sq km, this dam is a vital source of electricity and yields substantial revenue for the state of Kerala.

Owing to the perennial availability of water, many wild animals and birds flock to this area. Here, you can indulge in water sports like speed boating that are organised by the District Tourism Promotion Council of Idukki (Munnar). A vegetarian restaurant, located in proximity to the dam, serves scrumptious delicacies and refreshing beverages.
